  2. Hello, this article was so helpful but I was just wondering if that applies to apps where you download music from. I’m having that issue. I’ve been downloading music from an app that’s suppose to store the music to the sd card but it not showing up on it but on the device. Even write the developer & they said it’s suppose to but looking into it. It’s just frustrating because I’ve been looking everywhere didn’t info & this is the closest I’ve gotten to some type of answer. So I was just wondering if it applied to the music I downloaded or not. If not is there anything I should or can do? I have music already downloaded onto it from my old phone but I tried a couple new songs on my moto e but they aren’t storing on the sd card. Thank you very much & sort this is a bit long. Gd article!

    • Hi jamie, just look into the app whether it has any setting to set the path to SD card.If nothing found just cut the Song files from Device memory and paste it to SD card.We will find some more solution to this issue and get back to you.

    • Just go to setting>Storage>Move Media.There you can move the Flims(Videos) to SD card.If you want to move WhatApp video to Sd card then open FileManger WhatsApp>Media>Videos Cut the videos and paste it on your SD card.

  6. My daughter smashed her moto e (2nd). We backed up all her apps onto a 16g micro sd. When we purchased another moto e (2nd) and mounted the micro sd it does not see any of her apps?? The sd card is functioning as it works on my galaxy s4. So what else could be the problem and what are the steps to correcting it. Thanks!
